My one experience with this was not very successful, although I'm sure it was
pebkac, and yes I should have filed actual bugs if I found them (but was under
a crunch at the time).

IIRC, where I would normally apply a quilt patch, edit the file, and refresh
the patch, I always ended up with every modification as a separate d/patches
file, even though I thought I was rebasing it correctly.

Oh well - I'm curmudgeonly pretty comfortable with the svn-buildpackage set of
tools and workflows, which the DPMT still prefers.  I need to play more with
gbp and git-dpm, the latter which IIRC felt smoother.  Is there any emerging
consensus on which of the two git-based package development regimes is
"better" or "more popular"?
